The U.S. Postal Service issued the Mountain Flora stamps yesterday at the Jackson, Wyoming Post Office. The Forever stamps are now for sale at Post Offices nationwide.
It was a fittingly spring like morning in Jackson, as the stamp was unveiled. Each stamp in the block of four includes an illustration of one of these flowers: A purple pasqueflower; and orange-red wood lily; a bright yellow alpine buttercup; and a dark pink Wood’s rose. Art director Ethel Kessler designed the stamps with original art by Lili Arnold.
The Mountain Flora stamps are being issued in booklets of 20 and coils of 3,000 and 10,000 Forever stamps. These Forever stamps will always be equal to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
